  1. I'm so impressed with my weight I weighed less now than in 2014. I'm 31 pounds away from when I was pregnant with my 12 year old. My happy and outgoing personality hasn't changed in fact I am getting more love than I expected. My clothes are falling off me and I feel lighter plus I am more spiritually happy than ever. Can't for the next set of losses I am in the early 300 pound mark. I'm taking pictures to see the progress I have been making. Not to mention I am checking myself out in mirrors a lot lately.

  2. Does the noise in your stomach after you eat ever goes away? Always everytime I eat certain foods it taste like I swallowed a nasty pill, does that ever goes away?

  3. Would love to change my look but not due to weight loss. I want to do something drastic with my hair but not to out of this world just enough to make me feel more exciting also I could use it my act.

      Maybe get some highlights, a layered cut? Pinterest has lots of photos to help you pick something out. Share a photos with us when you do it @Sweet as peaches!!

      @Newme17 I am spending most of time in running capris and tank tops lol, but they are so comfortable and I love that I can wear them now.

    3. Newme17

      Newme17

      @Apple1 In my opinion, they're the most comfortable clothing ever. I wear them at work too. :)

      It's quite funny I'm in my hoodie at work under the a/c of course. I was thinking of putting braided extensions in my hair with a reddish color. Cause my hair is so gray on top. Then i was thinking a perm straightener with brownish highlights. I don't know. I know i need some dresses cause the old ones are draping under my feet and falling off.

  4. Every time i walk home, i pee a little so I stop but walking makes pee a little again. I might be abnormal but i have to ask.

      Yeah, it can be complicating...but let's look at the positives, you're getting healthy!!! Maybe see a doc about getting some relief though.

      My mom wore what is called a pessary. I don't know if I spelled that right, but it is a device that fits up inside and supports the bladder. I would definitely check with your doctor. Sorry you are having to deal with that.

      Thank for your support it is truly a relief to discuss this issue. I will let my doctor know bout this issue. Wearing absorbent underwear is like a bulky pad all over your bottom line.

  5. I am so happy to see that my bmi got out of the sixties and now it is in the fifties. I am seeing more results like my body is getting more boxy before my weight would make me looked like I was spreading out.

  6. I will never play balloon tennis with my twelve year old again. I played Tuesday in my bedroom with us taking turns smack a baby balloon like in tennis instead of racket we used our hands. Oh the horror, woke up early this morning at 2am with muscle spasms in my back. The pain didn't go away until i took ibuprofen at 9:30a.m.

      @Sweet as peaches I am glad you are feeling better. You must have really been into the balloon tennis game. At least you had fun!!

      Thank you. I am feeling better. Yes, I did have fun we were laughing so hard at our misses and how we almost smacked each other trying to get the balloon.

  8. Almost 48 years old and my period came back after wls with a vengeance. Stomach cramps and other stuff like crazy. Before wls it would show up sporadically but not now. This is the second time i had it since the surgery and on schedule of 30 days. This is crazy. I know my body is regulating but cramps seriously like i need Motrin which is the only thing that helps the pain.

      Thank you!!!!! It all worked out now i got this stupid acid reflux which i got my protonix and I am feeling much better.

    4. Newme17

      Newme17

      Glad to hear! I haven't experienced any reflux and hope I don't have to after finishing the meds the surgeon prescribed. They certainly help.

  9. Is any scared they won't have as much success as others? Or are you scared of failing? Do we all have that feeling? Also, I know two people who body had complications after surgery but it wasn't the surgery just their bodies had been overweight so long it caused complications. I was afraid of that happening but thank God it didn't.

      I like the sheet. Can you find it on word template or it's something you created?

    3. Sleeve1stFitNext

      Sleeve1stFitNext

      @Sweet as peachesI created this sheet myself. I can make one for you if you like.

    4. Sleeve1stFitNext

      Sleeve1stFitNext

      Also it is a google sheet. I keep it in my drive and I live in this sheet. It is the thing that keeps me grounded when I get frustrated.

  10. Why when are trying to be good a new commercial pop-ups making you want to slather your face in whatever they are selling? Like lil Caesar pizza

      Oh I hear you. I have never realised how much food is on tv. If they're not trying to sell it it's in movies and ads, everywhere you look there's product placements of food and so many scenes in restaurants and diners. Was watching some reruns of Seinfeld and I swear they eat every meal in the diner!

  11. Any had to use chlorhexidine gluconate scrub brushes  showering the night before and morning of the surgery? My pre-op instructions is to use them.

  12. Haa great day. No interference in my second day of full liquid diet. I drank my shakes low sodium v8 water carrot ginger mixed with chicken broth. And will have another shake in twenty minutes. I am so happy it's a great day. The weekend is easy no temptation.

      @Sweet as peachessorry so late on this but I am glad that you are doing amazing. This is hard but it prepares you for an emotional discovery. You find out just how strong you are.

      @Newme17 Remember my B-line to subway on day one. It happens. Our brains tell us, "Well its only one slice. Whats the worst that can happen?" lol our brains are like teenagers trying to get us to play hooky from school lol.

      I am loving the three musketeer vibe we have. It is awesome. I honestly, talk about you guys to my family, friends and co-workers. They will see my reading one of your post and laughing. I will say, well its these two amazing women that I met on this forum and they post daily updates about their journey. My boyfriend have read some of your post and he will say, "Hey you did that. Or hey why not try what she tried?". Having people understand you and are going through the same thing makes this journey way more easier and funnier.

      I am so happy. Thank you, ladies.

  13. I started my protein shake that I'm going to be enjoying for the next five and half weeks. Today was a pretest to how I will feel tomorrow morning. Tomorrow, I start my pre-op diet and don't want any surprises at work. I have been shunning soda for a week now and I feel really great. Please pray the my stomach doesn't get antsy at work that I need to seek solace on the bathroom.😎
